"A Heart is a Heart is a...Bicycle'
"A Heart is a Heart is a...Bicycle'
"A Heart is a Heart is a...Bicycle'
#7777 "A Heart is a Heart is a...Bicycle'

'A Heart is a Heart is ... a Bicycle' is a dazzler!  The feast of bright sterling silver - in the form the brilliant double-chain, and the charms, beads, spacers, the slender, edgy & rouge heart-connector,  I admit that I shy away from designing holiday-themed pieces...I'm stubborn like that.  So often, I'm in a Valentines Day frame-of-mind in the very early Fall while dining at Casanova's in Carmel or it is Halloween and yet I am feeling the ghostly vibe in mid-Spring when looking at YouTube videos of famous historic hauntings at the White House or feeling like snowflakes on the 4th of July, if I am sailing in the middle of a snowy fjord up in Glacier Bay National Park.  So...this year, I have only one design to offer up:  'A Heart is a Heart is...a Bicycle' - a title that reminds me of a similar discordant title about a fish.  Anyway, this is the perfect Valentines Day bracelet for any girl who is also a bike-diva, a gal who takes to the mountains or the hills or to hilltowns of Medieval Italy or France and does so without a second thought.  This red bike charming bracelet is just the piece for that girl.

'A Heart is a Heart...' is a 3 strand wrap bracelet and includes loads of sterling silver - three pieces of hand-cast, old-wax studio silver including a fetching 'Love' rectangle tag in the style of 'A Love Story' fame; the edgy studio connector made with 5 hearts, each of them unique in a gorgeous line-up and finally, a hammered heart toggle.  There are is also a fantastic real anatomical heart charm with arteries, veins and looking like a V-8 engine, more than a real human heart.  But, I think it is the real heart charm that really makes the bracelet in its theme of all things heart - a small, bright silver heart dangles from mid-center of one of the three strands.  The companion to the anatomical heart charm is the red & sterling red bicycle charm since there can be no love unless there is a healthy, working heart and aerobic exercise to make it so.

No Valentine theme would be complete without a beautiful deep red heart and on one strand is just that heart - rich, French red glossy heart surrounded by lots of bright sterling and a petite white lentil made by an esteemed glass artist trained in Florence, Italy.  Other lampwork includes an elegant white encased bead with sterling droplets fired into the glass, an encased polka dot bead with a red core and white polka dots; a white daisy-on-red round bead and several lampwork disc beads in reds, metallic reds with flashes of iridescent fuschia, white, polka-dot encased discs, etched (like beach glass) discs.  Other beads include wavy sterling discs & beadcaps, lush Keishi pearls, a handsome natural Baroque pearl, blue-fire flash faceted rondelles of a few sizes, Swarovski crystals in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors, including the sterling & crystal Swarovski rondelle beads.  The last elegant touch are a few delicately faceted blue topaz rondelle stones.

An original design - this is surely a Valentine meant to impress, to dazzle and to win a Bike Diva Girl's heart - whether she is a real bike-diva or... just one at heart.  'A Heart is a Heart is ... a Bicycle' measures 8.25" and can be resized at no additional charge.

'Storm at Sechelt'
'Storm at Sechelt'
'Storm at Sechelt'
#11127 'Storm at Sechelt'

The seaside town of Sechelt is a traditionally a fuel-stop enroute to Earl's Cove,  the second ferrry terminal on Highway 101 North in B.C., Canada. Normally, on our trip north to 'camp' (Savary Island), it is a jam to be first off the first ferry, hitting the road, going to the max allowed speed limit, taking all the old-timer secret short-cuts just to get that much closer to Earl's Cove, an hour away, where we catch the final ferry in our race north, on the Sunshine Coast.  We have been making the journey since I was five years old, most every summer, as we drove north from the S.F. Bay Area to our summer cabin in Canada.  But Sechelt, aside from being an understated Sausalito, CA or Newport, OR  is also a town that opens, exposed, to a wilder stretch of the inland passage (Georgia Strait) between B.C.'s mainland and the length of Vancouver Island.  As such, when a southwester blows in, the seas can be especially tempestuous and wild, causing many a small vessel to toss about like a small toy, especially if  boats are caught off-guard or if the weather arrives ahead of schedule.  Such was the case when my newly married parents took their classic cabin-cruiser, the Graycine out for an overnight trip in the 'honeymoon' years before having children.  The storm on this particular weekend was wicked, wild and the boat's engine suddenly quit, its engine engulfed with 'drink' and utterly disengaged from power.  There was no fixing it, especially in the dangerous high seas.  Even the radio had quit and darkness was upon them. My mother, a city-girl and land-lover, quietly wept in the galley as my strong & able father attached the dingy to the bow and started rowing his new wife and the Graycine through the pouring rain, high winds and the fierce, high waves ... until at last they reached the breakwater at the small marina in Sechelt.  It is a story my mom liked to tell every other year as we passed through Sechelt, stopping to gas-up at the only gas station in town.  Such, is the muse and backstory to 'Storm at Sechelt.'

'Storm at Sechelt' is a gallery-calibre 3-strand wrap bracelet made entirely of studio lampwork beads, gemstones, Swarovski crystals and sterling silver. Another LUXE design, this is a complex bracelet design in the 'spirit' genre; a complex design invoking the wild moving, alive energy of a wicked-good storm and all that means in terms of life and dancing with death when mariners are caught unprepared.  Only those who know how to be one with the sea and weather can hope to ride out such a storm, much less save a damsel in distress. 

This piece, as with others  of my LUXE collection,  is awash in top-flight artisan lampwork beads (by 8 different artists both here and abroad) and components. Starting with the magnificent tidepool-under-tempestuous-waves bead as the focal point around which all the other beads unify to make a piece of living sculptural jewelry.  The German artist responsible for the tidepool focal is especially gifted at creating beads as microcosms of a greater whole - whether it is a pond, a meadow, a forest or a tidepool.  She is able to capture the spirit of being alive in her work with molten glass and we are all the better for it.  Companion beads include the work of another gifted glass artist and her interpretation of stormy seas under a skeleton sun overhead of the storm.  Other lampwork of note is a textured round bead with glass portals popping out as pods which is done in a light mint green, cream, light bronze and clear, like an abstract anemone of a tidepool.  You will also find several textured, small organic encased rounds, other rounds etched like beach glass and sand-colored beads with dimples and lines of sterling silver.  Among my favorite second-string lampwork are the round, smooth white beads with tiny drops of bright sterling silver embedded deep within the still, cold glass.  These beautifully created lampwork beads are so elegant that using them in any design automatically sets the whole piece in a league of its own. "Storm at Sechelt" incorporates lots of lovely, sensual and edgy precious and semi-precious gemstones which include:  Blue-fire flash moonstone rondelles, chips of aqua colored apatite in two shades, one more transparent and the other, a more milky shade of aqua. Creamy colored keishi pearls and Baroque pearls capped in white sterling beadcaps lend elegance and depth to 'Storm at Sechelt' along with smooth, large faceted nuggets of clear quartz. Blue-fire laboradite flashes in small coin beads, adding the perfect contrasting color to a sea under siege from the winds and storm above. Over 50 sterling silver braided, plain rings & beadcaps, wavy silver discs, daisy spacers pepper the three strands, providing that bright, silver flash in the midst of so much color - much like the silver-on-the-sea on a too sunny day at the sea when the light is almost blinding as it comes off the water.  Three solid sterling charms complete 'Storm at Sechelt' and include a detailed lighthouse and its keeper's cottage, a schooner under sail and a wee sea turtle who hangs on a bright sterling chain at the junction of the three strands.  'Storm at Sechelt' is finished with a sterling silver lobster clasp and receptacle set and measures just under 9 inches in length.  Because of the dynamics of the 3-strand wrap design, with three strands parallel to each other in close proximity, the measurement must take into account certain bulk of the beads (though not weight, thankfully).  My 7 inch wrist fits this 8.75 inch bracelet perfectly without being too tight and with just the right amount of slack to make it comfortable.

'Koi Pond Origami Day'
'Koi Pond Origami Day'
'Koi Pond Origami Day'
#712 'Koi Pond Origami Day'
'Koi Pond Origami Day' reminds me of the time, many years ago, when I went to hear His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, speak at the Greek Theatre on the campus of U.C. Berkeley, my alma mater. The Greek Theatre was packed to the gills and after an electric hour, hearing the Dalai Lama speak, I thought to skip the Tibetan dance performance and get ahead of the crowds, flocking out of the Greek and into the day's commute hour. As I stood on the sidewalk just outside the Greek, waiting to cross the street to cut through campus, someone yelled, 'there he is!' As if in slow motion, I looked up and came face-to-face with His Holiness, who was hanging out of his limo window, smiling and looking right into my eyes. I said, 'well, hello there!' as if he was a long, lost neighbor. After the limo had passed, bystanders rushed up to me, exclaiming, 'boy you were sure at the right place, at the right time!' It was a moment etched in time that I shall never forget. And I remember that morning dressing so carefully in a long, cream lace dress, oiling my skin and announcing to the office that I had dressed up to see His Holiness. Co-workers scoffed, 'Julie! He will never see you, the Greek is going to be packed with 100,000 people!' Guess they were wrong and the fates had different plans.
 
In any case, 'Koi Pond Origami Day' reminds me of just that moment frozen in time and the warmth and humility of a holy man living his words, walking his talk. Truly a feeling of peace and joy radiated from the slow-moving long, black limo and the happy, smiling face of a sacred man, greeting me on a Berkeley sidewalk, one warm summer's day.
 
So..the beads. These are some of the most stunning sculptural beads you might hope to find called, "Koi Pond.' The gifted glass artist rarely makes them anymore and I was very fortunate to luck into a set of them. When I sat down to create a piece around these beads, I honestly had no idea I was going to go for broke and make such a fun, colorful blend of colors around the otherwise serene scene of the beads. "Koi Pond Origami Day' is a wrap-styled bracelet comprised of three strands of stone, gemstones, freshwater Baroque pearls, Austrian Swarovski crystal, sterling silver and studio crafted lampwork beads by over 9 different artists located both here, in Germany and the UK.
 
Companion beads include
* Large blue-flash moonstone faceted nuggets
* Faceted amethyst rondelles in large and small sizes
* Petite faceted pink amethyst nuggets from Brazil
* Gorgeous faceted peridot slender nuggets
* Faceted cubic zirconia teardrop beads
* Bold orange carnelian nugget
* Luscious, creamy freshwater baroque pearls
* Rouge sterling silver rings (large & small) by a metal artisan using the old wax technique
* Sterling silver work by Thailand's famous Karen Hilltribe artisans including the origami box, closed lotus flower beads & bead caps
* Sterling silver Buddha, temple & bright silver flower charms
* A Garden Soup of nationally & internationally handmade lampwork beads!
 
"Koi Pond Origami Day" measures 8 inches, however because of its design, cannot be resized. However, although each piece I design is a one-of-a-kind, I can create a custom order using beads from the same lampwork bead sets from the artist whose work I still have 'on file' in my studio. Although it will not be an exact duplicate of 'Koi Pond Origami Day,' I can create something very, very close to the original design.

#312 "Daisy Days"
"Daisy Days" is another of my newer designs from my Simple Luxe Collection. This piece is a lampwork, gemstone 'wrap' or three-strand bracelet. That is, three strands of lampwork, stones, gems, white & regular sterling (925) and some lovely sterling charms including: a small rogue handmade 'DAISY' charm created by a local gifted artist using the old-wax casting technique. The same metalsmith also completed the dainty rouge-daisy toggle clasp made of solid sterling. Stunning pure white, clear & red/white studio lampwork beads (*at least 12 individual lampwork beads) were created by six esteemed lampwork artists living here and abroad and make up 'Daisy Days.' You will find a magnificent 'spankle' white round with swirls of white punctuated by real sterling droplets of silver encased in the glass. The swirls of white look like a moving scarf in the wind. These spankle beads are an original design of a gifted English artist. Her beads are difficult to come by as she sells most of her work locally. Also of note, are the clear/white bubble beads - like bubbles of water trapped under glass. The focal set of lampwork are created by the ever-talented, Catherine Steele. These include her encased red, clear & white daisy lentils & her actual daisy sculptural beads. I never tire of working with her daisy encased beads and as I was longing for full-on Spring this weekend, this seemed like the perfect time to pull out her cheerful daisy lentils set.
 
The piece is punctuated with AAA faceted quartz nuggets, freshwater Baroque & button, red furnace heart beads by the esteemed furnace glass artist Christensen, a large faceted chunky moonstone nugget and slim rondelles which flashes blue in just the right light and lots of white sterling findings, clear, red, opaque Swarovski crystal beads, sterling silver beads and accents. 'Daisy Days' is an elegant landscape of cascading beads for the season of unfolding green and color spots as gardens around the country start to offer up early blooms, preparing for an abundant, happy growing season (non-GMO seeds, of course).* For those unfamiliar with 'lampwork' beads - these are individual works of glass art created by gifted artists using rods of glass and a torch. There is a whole collectors' world of lampwork bead enthusiasts along with designers who use them in their jewelry work. Although some lampwork beads are now made en masse in China and beyond, my designs use only lampwork created by top-flight studio artists.As a quick aside, I read just yesterday that a color trend of Spring, 2012 is a pure and 'blinding' white. I must admit I was swooning when I saw an elegant, silk, flowing suit - perfectly tailored on a tall, elegant young woman. It is nice to see the pure color of white 'on trend' again!'Daisy Days' measures a firm 8.25 inches with very little give - this particular design is meant to have a snug fit as three separate strands against the wrist, quite unlike my signature dangle designs or my playful 2 strand wrap design. An 8.25 inch bracelet would best fit someone with a 6.50 or 6.75 inch wrist.
